Beating Beauty - concept sketch
Beating Beauty is a Tech Couture ensemble that utilizes the beating heart as a means of expression. This piece was created for the Heart Truth Fashion Show 2017 and was worn by Kiki Buttignol.
The model wears a Polar heart rate sensor which wirelessly transmits heat beats to a receiver chip in the custom made fascinator. LED's are programmed to pulse with the heart beat. The light from the LED’s is diffused by a variety of materials in the fascinator to create a soft glowing light display.
